ELECTROACUPUNCTURE (EA)

With electroacupuncture (EA), needles are inserted by hand but then attached to a battery-operated device which generates a mild electrical current that causes stimulation of the needles. This current generally applies more stimulation to acupoints than needle twirling or other hand manipulation techniques an acupuncturist might use. The intensity of stimulation is adjusted to the patients’ comfort levels and treatment is delivered for 20 minutes.

EA is used mainly for central stimulation and to treat chronic pain and other conditions.

Since the introduction of EA, studies have found that analgesic effects of EA are greater and more effective than manual manipulation. Manual acupuncture and EA appear to stimulate different areas in the brain.

Best Acupuncture Clinic!

Wondering if acupuncture is worth the money? Don’t think twice! I had a serious neck and shoulder problem after several unfortunate incidents. I’ve tried painkillers, physiotherapy, ultrasounds, but nothing really worked. Not to mention I couldn’t sleep and had to stop my activity completely. From the beginning of this year, I have been seen by Dr. Hans Mathew several times. First, he described each step and the benefits of the treatment and made sure I’m comfortable. Being a little nervous around the needles, I found it very reassuring. Next, we’ve started a 10-session treatment that lasted over 2 months. I’ve heard that medical acupuncture really works, but I certainly didn’t expect such a significant effect – my issues started improving almost immediately. Now I see Dr. Hans once a month to still benefit from the electro-acupuncture that works for me as stress relief. I can’t recommend Dr. Hans Mathew enough; he’s highly qualified and fully patient-focused!
